White can look so great. It makes a space look cleaner and bigger, which is almost always a good thing. But there is something about white – white yellows.

And seeing white things yellow drives me crazy. It makes me feel like life is just one long battle against oxidation.

My white kitchen countertop is definitely yellowing – and the more I stare at it, the more yellow it becomes. And I am not even going to talk about the stains that can get on white surfaces, because that is a whole other rant.

While my brain goes into random overdrive about the un-whitening of my kitchen countertop, I realise that maybe white is just another secret test of life. You know, like how you react to its gradual decline in colour purity is simply a process to train your mind (like a Jedi) to not sweat the small things (although, is a non-white countertop that is supposed to be white, strictly speaking, a small thing?).

So, the solution: stop staring at the white.

That should fix everything.
